To be frank, most monitors that traverse my desk aren’t exactly the most exciting in the world. If the panel is sharp and accurate, I am 95% satisfied, since all the other bells and whistles are almost unnecessary if you just need something to sit in front of you for editing photos and video. This thinking all changed when the...

After the camera, a photographer’s next closest friend should definitely be a hard drive. Think about it. For the modern digital photographer, hard drives are the new albums full of negatives. They hold all your work and, if backups are being performed regularly, they keep your images safe and sound for many years, letting you pull up archived images quickly with speedy searches, as opposed to...

Whether you’re playing games on a PC, console, or mobile device, there’s one thing that all gamers need: The Internet. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to play online with your friends or even download that 50GB day-one patch you need to play a single-player game. However, just having the Internet isn’t enough, because when lag spikes, packet loss, and disconnects hit, you’ll probably be glaring...

One of the nice things about working for a technology company is that not only do we get to review lots of cool gear, but sometimes that gear is so useful it becomes part of our everyday workflow. Take, for example, the Sony DPT-RP1 Digital Paper System, which, after some initial in-house testing...

We came. We saw. And on the rare occasion we managed to conquer, at E3 2018.

Read on to find out what we thought brought the heat to LA this year. Best Nintendo...

Another toys-to-life experience isn't quite what many of us hand in mind when we came to E3, but when Ubisoft dropped the news that Star Fox was joining the cast of Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch version, I'm sure many heads turned to see exactly what this adventure was about. I was one of those people, curious about this upcoming space adventure where one of the most famous...

After a press conference focusing on many heavy-hitting titles, it seemed like Sony's PlayStation VR Headset had fallen by the wayside. This is far from the case, however, because one step inside their booth revealed a sizable area where you could go hands-on with about a dozen different games that are coming to the platform soon. Here's a closer look at some of the games they highlighted. Tetris...

While we were walking through the Sony booth, we were pulled into the FIFA 19 demo. Playing on PS4 and DualShock wireless controllers, we decided to team up against the AI since we were novice players. Jumping into a 10-minute match, we immediately noticed how tight the controls felt. Going for slide tackles quickly became one of our favorite things to do in the demo, but we became overzealous a...

After getting to the South Hall of the LA Convention Center early in the morning, I played the new Pokémon game after a relatively short wait (it was way worse in the afternoon). When I reached the front of the line, I was instructed to approach a docked Nintendo Switch and a TV where a Nintendo staff member was waiting. She explained that I was going to be playing Let's Go, Pikachu! (the version...

It was very clear how popular battle royale games have become, especially Fortnite. That game was everywhere on the show floor. You could play Fortnite at several different booths and on different devices. While Fortnite isn't a new game, it did become available for download on the Nintendo Switch during E3 2018. Epic Games had its own booth in the South Hall and the company went all-out. There...

If you have been wanting to shoot webs and swing through New York City, the latest Spider-Man, from Insomniac Games, is the best opportunity to take control of the superhero. At E3, Sony offered quite a sizable demo of the game, which makes sense considering it is one of Sony's major exclusives. It is another beautiful game that shows off the power of the PS4 Pro and does a great job of...

While I explored the show floor at E3 2018, it was refreshing to see different types of gamers. Male, female, young, old, and everyone in between, people came together to see the new and exciting games. As an avid gamer, I'm proud to see how gaming has transformed from a niche hobby into a mainstream activity. And while the games were the obvious focus, Microsoft provided an answer to an...
